The Real Ghostbusters vs. the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Over at the other site I write for, Adventures in Poor Taste, I whipped this Turtle-related article up:

The Real Ghostbusters vs. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

It's a review of an episode of "The Real Ghostbusters" that aired in 1990, "Mean Green Teen Machine", which was a rather ill-executed attack on the success of the Fred Wolf "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" animated series. It's an interesting watch, to say the least; even moreso because Cam Clarke (80s voice of Leonardo) plays the lead Turtle-parody character, "Guggenheim".

But while I'm equal parts Ghostbusters and TMNT fan, all this episode succeeded in doing was to make both parties look embarassing.

Bowser was called King Koopa in the Mario Bros. show... But the likeness is pretty obvious indeed.
